First off you want to try to avoid allowing the machine to freeze if at all possible. However you should most likely let it be for a while, at least 12 hours with the room at a good 70 degrees or higher if possible. If you cant make it that warm then just increase the amount of time you wait. Once thats done I would run it with hot water empty for a couple cycles just to make sure any ice has been removed. After that it should be good to go, unless the expanding water damaged the pump in which case you will see leaking beneath the machine. A new pump is generally inexpensive and easy to install yourself.

I need room temp butter and mine is frozen. How can I thaw, but not melt the butter?

cut off the amount of butter that you want( cutting corners off is best) and allow those sections to stand on the bench
to get those sections to thaw quicker , cut them into smaller pieces as the less mass to stay cold the quicker it thaws out

I left frozen container of homeade chili on the counter to thaw and forgot it overnight. it's now almost 68 degrees internal temperature. is it safe to eat?

Once you reheat it thoroughly it is fine, but it is best to thaw in the fridge. The rule keep hot foods hot and cold foods cold can keep nasty bacteria at bay if it had gotten contaminated, but it was kept covered.

Our tankless water heater - less than a year old - first winter - is frozen up with the weather. How do we thaw it safely. The technician who came out said they couldn't do anything while it is frozen...

The best way to thaw it is to use a heat gun or a hair dryer....keep the gun back enough so that you heat it slowly and keep it moving all the time so you do not get too much heat in one spot....

this will thaw it out for you...

In-door water dispenser not working. tried lowering temp in frig to thaw line. Worked, but now line seems frozen again. ice in icemaker holder seems to be thawing and freezer is accumulating frost/frozen...

Defrost the freezer completely. Make sure the doors are sealed completely when shut. After defrosting plug back in and make sure the fan and the self defroster is functioning (your owner's manual should tell you how to reset the defrost timer). the problem may lay within the defrost system, and/or door seals and/or interior circulating fan.

How can I thaw frozen heater coil hoses?

If your heater core hoses are frozen you should immediately drain the coolant out of your radiator and engine and refill it with the proper mixture. Your lucky if your heater core lines are the only thing that froze, it could have popped a freeze plug or two out of the block. You could use a hair dryer or heat gun if you need to unfreeze it quickly.

Frozen wiper fluid. is there something I can add to a just filled washer tank

Well if is just filled and frozen then I would guess that you would have to wait for a warm day and try to get some of the fluid out first.Several companys make a ice melting washer fluid,but even if your tank is not frozen and it is just in your lines that are on your sprayers you will still have to wait until they thaw on there own.Unless you have acess to a heated garage.

The washer fluid in frozen in the tank - 2008 cobalt lt

Most times you can mostly thaw it out with a hair-dryer. There are available washer fluids that will not freeze as easily.Once thawed, you can siphon out what is in there and save it for summer. One thing to remember though is that temps at the windshield especially on very cold days can be far cooler than ambient temps when in motion and can freeze even the best fluids either in the lines or on the glass.
